Michelle Obama Ruins Easter

Courtesy of CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller's twitter feed, you get to see the latest logo for the White House Easter Egg Roll: a rabbit working out.

I don't know whose idea this was, but, considering the First Lady's Let's Move initiative, that seems like a good place to start. Talk about giving kids body image issues and food guilt already. What's next, celery for Halloween?

(Update: Per the White House press release, "The White House Easter Egg Roll is focused on promoting health and wellness with the theme, “Get Up and Go!”  All of the activities will encourage children to lead healthy and active lives, which is a central part of the First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative, a national campaign to combat childhood obesity.")

As a final note, obviously, it's important for kids to eat healthy and exercise. Townhall's problem with Michelle Obama's program is that it's basically another smokescreen by which the government can 1)exercise more control over your life and 2)play the parent, which it thinks you are incapable of doing adequately (although it's a role government itself is incredibly inadequate for).

Considering the fact that the Obamas are for abortion, it's ironic Michelle chooses to discriminate against kids who have no voice for themselves in the womb, then makes herself a champion of their well being when they're older.
